You may specialize in either product or furniture design. A hands-on approach incorporates research techniques, collaboration, and group working, developing finished objects intended for craft, industrial production, or conceptual prototype.
The course is studio and project-based. You will practice interdisciplinary methods of working, often collaborating with postgraduates from other courses. Activities may include specialist lectures, workshop inductions, group and personal tutorials, seminars, and symposiums. In your final project, you will be able to develop your interests and agenda. Your work will culminate in an exhibition, attended by design professionals and the press.
